''Nevermind'' is the second studio album by the American rock band Nirvana, released on September 24, 1991. Produced by Butch Vig, ''Nevermind'' was the group's first release on DGC Records. Frontman Kurt Cobain sought to make music outside of the restrictive confines of the Seattle grunge scene, drawing influence from groups such as the Pixies and their use of loud/quiet song dynamics.
Despite low commercial expectations by the band and its record label, ''Nevermind'' became a surprise success in late 1991, largely due to the popularity of its first single, "Smells Like Teen Spirit". By January 1992, it had replaced Michael Jackson's album ''Dangerous'' at number one on the ''Billboard'' charts. The Recording Industry Association of America has certified the album ten times platinum (10 million copies shipped). ''Nevermind'' was responsible for bringing alternative rock to a large mainstream audience, and critics subsequently regarded it as one of the best rock albums of all time. - Wikipedia
